The package should not provide itself or conflict its VCS alternatives. Only 'albert-git' should conflict and provide 'albert'.

Can you remove "-j $((nproc+1))". This violates any user preference set in makepkg.conf

Can you remove VERBOSE=1 from the make command to clean up the installation output a bit?

Sorry guys I got too much issues complaining about the missing optional dependencies. I hope you can handle the 7 MB of extra space for the qml dependencies.

@Serede The have some problems at OBS at the moment. The mirrors are out of sync.

Is the Arch packaging gone from the OpenSuse build service?

Stop annoying people with the same old "muh bloat" argument, please.

Just tried to build Albert on a new machine and was surprised to see VirtualBox as a dependency.

@manuelschneid3r, I understand that you're trying to add new functionality, but one of the things people like Albert for is that it's a really simple, lightweight omnilauncher. Throwing in VirtualBox just feels like "too much" for some people, even if the solution is to "just uninstall it" later.

I was installing Albert on an old laptop. I don't want to install VirtualBox, DKMS, or go through the hassle of uninstalling those things.

A few simple edits to the PKGBUILD (remove the two VirtualBox lines from [makedepends], and add in the [DBUILD_VIRTUALBOX=OFF] parameter) and I got Albert running without VirtualBox. I'm happy, because Albert is one of my favorite tools that I don't want to live without!

There is now a binary build on openSuse Build service:

So if you dont want to build on your own add this repo.
